KIJANI: Sage green and Green stripe sisal basket
Ideal for organisation around the house, decor, plant pot cover, pantry storage, toy storage adding natural texture and colour to your space.
Handmade by a self help group of lady weavers in a remote rural village in Kenya. Due to the arid/dry environment the women rely on weaving before the rainy season. Working directly with the weavers ensures fair trade & sustainability bringing financial security & providing additional income to sustain their livelihood.
We use 100% locally grown environmental friendly sisal with high quality fibres. .
Woven from sisal (perennial succulent) extracting the fibre is a sincere labour of love. The fibre is then dried, brushed and dyed with natural food products. It takes few days or up to a week to finish a basket depending with the size and complexity of the design. Each basket represents hours of work & has it’s own unique qualities & reveals layers of stories woven into the strands
Purchasing one of these baskets supports it’s makers and helps preserve an ancient craft tradition.
